Get Him to the Greek trailer has Jonah Hill, Russell Brand and vomit stains

02.11.2010

Some of the people involved in FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL obviously had a blast, since a bunch of them reunited for another comedy. Judd Apatow and FORGETTING helmer Nick Stoller hooked up for Universal's GET HIM TO THE GREEK (described as "a very dirty take on ALMOST FAMOUS"), bringing along their previous co-stars Jonah Hill and Russell Brand. And P. Diddy, for whatever reason.

The synopsis/spin: Get ready to get down and dirty with British rock star Aldous Snow (Russell Brand)! Aldous was once a brilliant musician, but now his star power is starting to fade, and he’s in desperate need of a comeback. Aaron Green (Jonah Hill) is instructed by his record mogul boss, Sergio Roma (Sean Combs), to fly to London and escort Aldous Snow to L.A.’s world famous Greek Theatre for the opening night of his comeback tour – and of course, it’s no easy task!

Despite my low tolerance for the persona/schtick of Russell Brand (and the "acting" of P. Puffy Diddy Combs, for that matter), this looks like a good time. The poster is also down there. Metal.

Extra Tidbit: Is it just me, or does Brand resemble a skinny British Robert Z'Dar?

count me in

Again, I'm not gonna be popular, but I think Russel Brand is hilarious, I basically laugh just when I see the guy. And Hill is getting a lot of hate that I dont really find justified, the guy's been funny in most everything he'S done.

Anyway, count me in!

Pass.

While I liked Sarah Marshall, this looks kind of lame. Not Year One lame, but close.

This trailer looks great. Jonah is a really great comedian. And for those of you who say he's a one trick actor...how many comedians started the same way and eventually evolved... Jim Carey, Bill Murray, Adam Sandler...should I continue?

Indeed. Look how he's changed from Billy Madison to Mr. Deeds to Funny People.

I really would like this to be funny, but I didn't get much from the trailer. The Puffy Daddy scenes (he will always be Puff Daddy to me) are awkward and you know he can be somewhat funny if you've ever seen Favreau/Vaughn's "Made." I loved Sarah Marshall and Brand was great in it but it's kind of like giving Stifler his own movie after American Pie. He's funny in small doses, but a whole movie just looks like he's overstaying his welcome. I will await a red band trailer but as of now I'm kind

Extra Tidbit: LOL...Mystery Science Theater 3000 always loved making fun of Robert Z'Dar. I can kind of see the resemblance.

As for the film, I liked Russel Brand as a side character in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, but as far as being able to take on a lead role I'm not certain he's up to the task. I also agree with all you schmoes who think that Jonah Hill needs to stop playing the same kind of character.

Fun times ahead..

I've enjoyed most of what these guys have been in so far, looking forward to this.

Is it just me or does Brand sport a 'shopped set of teeth? They're almost vampire-ish!

This feedback rating

is a joke... abolish it. You say, "Brand isn't funny", that equals a negative. You say, "I don't like him, but this looks good", that's a plus. Rating peoples opinions? Joke.

This looks just as stupid as every other comedy to come down the pipe. Brand is a fucking turd, that's about as funny as putting up wallpaper. Hill is just playing the "fat kid" again... he's what, 25? Count me out.

(awaits negative ratings)

You seem like the kind of person who thinks that their own opinion is fact. And that makes you sir, A JOKE. Everyone has their own sense of humor and what appeals to them is what appeals to them. These feedbacks exist to let people discuss why they like one thing and dont like another thing. When people like you come along and shit on everyone else for liking something it sickens me.

Lol

I love me some Hill, I know he has his haters much like Rogan. But the fact of the matter is many people like him and he puts asses in the seats. If you don't like him that's fine. I get his appeal and think this looks hilarious, I don't really find Brand that funny, but maybe I just haven't warmed up to him yet. I'm just glad I found my first must see comedy of the summer. Oh and Hot Tub Time Machine but that's not really summer.

The only person I can stand less than Brand and Hill is Micheal Cera.
I cannot for the life of me figure out how these people keep getting parts in films.

This looks pretty funny. Aldous Snow and Jonah Hill were two of my favorite things about Forgetting Sarah Marshall, so more of them is quite welcome.

Is Brand suppose to be funny?

Even if I didn't dispise Brand, there would be nothing in this trailer that interests me.
